Oops I Passed Out!


K-Ci went on the radio today and said that Jojo suffers from epilepsy, that they had flown 20 hours to get to Australia, went straight to the show and that as a result of being tired, JoJo had an epileptic seizure.

His explanation for not rushing over to see if JoJo was ok or not was a little weak. He said that JoJo lays on the stage sometimes while they preform. Face down?


Looks like I am not the only one who has embarrassing experiences in front of other people.

About 8 or 9 years ago, I was going to get my hair done at at a salon in the Sports Club LA. K-Ci and JoJo from the R&B group Jodeci were there too. They were getting mani and pedi's.

They were funny guys so I was joking around with them. I had not eaten all day and when I stood up, I felt like I was going to pass out. I told a hair dresser who had walked up to me that I felt like I was going to faint. Thank God she was standing there because that's the last thing that I remember before I went down.

She saw my eyes roll back in my head and grabbed me, easing me to the ground as I collapsed. When I woke up, I was surrounded by a what seemed like a ton of people. All standing over me yelling "Call 911!"

I was immediately and TOTALLY embarrassed. And to add insult to injury, I started throwing up! Thank God again, there was a trash can right there for me to use so I didn't have to hurl all over the floor, in front of (in my head) the world.

I've fainted 3 times in my life and 2 out of the 3, I have thrown up. I guess, that is my thing.

Aren't you glad that I'm sharing?

Everyone was really nice to me and took good care of me, including K-Ci and JoJo (I didn't know who there were until later when someone told me) and it turned out that I was fine. Aside from feeling like an idiot.

Ironically (for me at least), last night Jodeci was having some sort of reunion concert in Australia. And right in the middle of singing "All My Life," JoJo passed out in the middle of the song. Hit the floor. Face first!

He wins. That sucks way more than my experience. Poor guy.
